Vitamix Winter Soups: Delicious, Convenient and Cozy!

Vitamix Blenders, created by the Barnard family back in 1938, has simply become the top-quality name in all the blender world. William Grover Barnard knew whole foods were a key to health. The Barnards even brought the US their first “infomercial” back in 1949, declaring the importance of a health food-based lifestyle via The Vitamix. By utilizing a Vitamix, one can grind grain, chop, knead dough, and make: Ice cream, hot soup, hummus, nut butters, salsas, and you get the point…Everything you can think of!

With winter still here for a few more months, soup will always satisfy on a cold day. Let’s explain how a Vitamix Blender can heat up to make a hot soup. Simply by friction. Vitamix has such a powerful 2.2 horsepower motor that at 36,000 revolutions per minute, any and all ingredients at top power gradually increase in heat to the point of boiling! So, with that knowledge, let’s blend some soups to steamy perfection in our Vitamix!

The Top of The Line Vitamix Blender is The Professional Series 750 Heritage Collection G-Series Blender. At under 18”, this beast can contain 64 ounces of the finest, quickest, and healthiest hot soup in under 10 minutes!

Here’s our video all about the Vitamix 750 Pro:

The classic of all soups: Vegetable. Use any vegetable you wish. If you decide to use some Russets for this one, cook the potatoes to almost done another way before adding to this, or any soup. Potatoes in raw form aren’t good, or good for you. The Vitamix will take care of cooking the tators, just best to start the process elsewhere. Fine dicing of softer varieties of potatoes can be blended raw with the 1st ingredients.



2 tablespoons fine diced celery
2 tablespoons chopped carrots
2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
2 tablespoons diced Roma tomatoes

2 stalks celery
2 tablespoons chopped organic red bell pepper
1 tablespoon nutrition yeast or other protein powder

The Vitamix 750 makes life just too easy! Throw in your soup base ingredients. Start at #1, and progress to #10, then to High. This mixture will be warm in 2 minutes. Hot in 5 or 6! Stir in the carrots, tomatoes, celery, and bell peppers. Top it off with cilantro or parsley if you wish. And now you have a perfectly healthy, warm, soup that was fast, easy, and completed in under 10 minutes! Use the self-clean button on the Vitamix for an effortless clean.

Chicken Tortilla Soup is a cozy, south of the border favorite during these winter nights. Cooking, or purchasing, some chicken is the only ingredient that needs prior cooking outside of the Vitamix. All other ingredients are simply blended to almost boiling in a matter of minutes with these blades of steel.



2 cups hot H2O
½ cup extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 carrot (cut)
½ of a zucchini
1 stalk celery (cut)
2 Roma tomatoes
1 large jalapeno (de-seeded)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 green onion (white and green parts)
½ of a green pepper
1 small Anaheim pepper
1 large garlic clove
Sliced olives (to taste)
¼ can of Mexican-style corn
½ can of black beans
1 large cooked chicken breast (diced)
½ cup Mexican rice
S & P to taste

All is easy and convenient with a Vitamix. The same method applies. Start low and slow on #1 and crank this baby up to High for 5 minutes with all but the last 6 ingredients. Give it a taste. Add your salt and pepper accordingly. Then, place the remaining ingredients in and pulse for 5 to 10 seconds or until the chicken consistency is where you like it. Serve with some sour cream, cilantro, and some more cheese on top. Yum!

The easiest of easiest soups one can make in a flash for a cold winter day is tomato and basil soup. A few ingredients and minutes are that are needed to create this simple classic soup.



About 10 small tomatoes (or 3 cans San Marzano tomatoes)
1 large red onion (quartered)
1 small bulb garlic (Clean and use all cloves)
2 ½ Tbsps. extra virgin olive oil
½ cup fresh basil
S & P (to taste)

Same as usual. It’s too simple and so tasty! Start low and bring to High for 5 minutes with all ingredients. Hope you have your cheese sandwich ready for dippin’!

Vitamix themselves have created a unique, yet simple, soup that is great to feed the kids after hockey practice. Turning pizza into soup shows how genius the folks at Vitamix really are!



1 small garlic bulb (all cloves used)
1 small red onion (peeled & diced)
5 small white mushrooms
½ of a green bell pepper (de-seeded)
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
9 slices of deli pepperoni
1 large Italian sausage (cooked and de-skinned if needed)
11/4 cup H2O
2 large Roma tomatoes (de-seeded)
½ can of the small tomato paste
1 teaspoon each: dried oregano, basil, and black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Sauté a green pepper, one Roma tomato, garlic, onion, mushrooms, in olive oil until wilting. Add the pepperoni and cooked sausage together in a small bowl. Set aside for later. Place water, half of the sautéed vegetable mixture, 2 tomatoes, tomato paste, and seasonings into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid. Select Variable 1. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for 1-3 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid. Reduce speed to Variable 2 and remove the lid plug. Add remaining half of the sautéed vegetables, meat mix, and the cheeses through the lid plug opening. Blend for an additional 5-10 seconds.
